second amendment rights and the second amendment rights of our law-abiding law-ag citizens. we have seen the newtown parents here in washington bravely telling their stories. they deserve better than this body turning their backs on them. the families of aurora deserve better than this body turning their backs on them. the families of more than 30 people who die every single day at the hands of gun violence deserve more from this body. my friends, it is simply time to act. today is the day for this body to show the american people that their voices matter. that when 90% of americans demand us to expand background checks, that we can deliver. we should be able to agree today that we no longer need military-style weapons and ammunition clips on our streets. and we should be able to agree today that it's time to crack down on the illegal handguns being trafficked in our streets into the hands of criminals. four years ago, i met the parents of naisha pryor yard. naisha was a beautiful 17-year-old honor student killed in the prime of her life by an illegal handgun when she was just spending t
and use tax laws and for other purposes. mr. reid: mr. president, i would object to any further proceedings in regard to this bill. the presiding officer: objection having been heard, the bill will be placed on the calendar. mr. reid: mr. president, today this august body will honor the memory of 20 first-grade children, little babies who were gunned down, most of them shot multiple times. we will also honor the teachers and administrators who were killed that day in newtown, connecticut. but we're also going to honor with this legislation tens of thousands of others who were killed by guns each year here in america. we're going to do that by voting on a number of measures to strengthen the laws to prevent gun violence in this nation. mr. president, the families of innocents killed in newtown, aurora, in carson city, blacksburg, in oak creek and columbine really deserve these votes. where do i stand on these democratic proposals? this afternoon the senate will vote on a compromised background check proposal crafted by senators manchin, toomey, kirk and schumer, all experienced l
or forced into exile abroad. the comprehensive immigration reform law under consideration includes important provisions to make businesses more competitive. this does the same, which is why it is supported by fortune 500 companies like intel, marriott, texas instruments, u.s. airways. the failure to recognize gay and lesbian families is a direct impact on american business. in a letter last month to the eight senators who authored the border security economic opportunity and immigration modernization act, a coalition of 28 of the most prominent companies wrote, we of each work to help american employees whose families were split apart because ey cannot sponsor the permanent partners for immigration benefits. we lost productivityhen those families are sepated. with borne the cost of transferring and retraining employees talented employees so they may live a lot of -- they live abroad with loved ones. it is not just major corporations that lose out. in columbia, south carolina, restaurant owner with 25 employees recently made the decision to close the business in order to move so he could be w
tragedy to a law office in san francisco in 1993. where a crazed gunman -- i remember his name but i won't say it -- with an assault weapon killed eight people and wounded six. one of those people was a brave warrior who threw his body over the body of his wife, sacrificing his own life to save hers. now, that young man was one of my son's best friends, and i know personally how these horrific and senseless tragedies live on with the survivors. the parents, the spouses, the children, the family and the friends. it changes their lives and it pierces their hearts forever. so i've told you a couple of stories about california, but let me say this. let's look at what's happened across this nation since sandy hook. in the 120 days since sandy hook, more than 2,200 americans have been killed by gun violence. hardly anyplace was spared. now, we know there are many, many firearms in america. 300 million firearms in the united states. if you were to divide that up, that would be one gun per person. of course, there are many people who just have many, many guns. now, this is a 50% increase in the
locomotives. about half a billion dollars to be spent on these new locomotives. in that section of law, one sentence was added that said these must be 100% american made. no one was making locomotives in america before that. but siemens, the german corporation, one of the biggest manufacturers in the world said, oh, half a billion dollar well, can make locomotives in america, sure. in sacramento, california, they opened a manufacturing plant, probably somewhere between 200 and 300 people working there today manufacturing 100% american made locomotives and on may 134, three years after they began this process, the first 100% american made locomotive in probably more than a century rolled onto the tracks of america. we can do this. h.r. 549 will provide that opportunity, using american-taxpayer money. i have another bill that does the same for wind and solar projects. we can do these things and put our mind to it and get past this business of austerity. we cannot solve this problem of american jobs with an austerity budget. we see it failing here in europe and united states as the long-term u

terrified as law enforcement went door to door. after the standoff we spoke to neighbors. here on cyprus street, this is one of the houses where police were combing through the neighborhood looking for the suspect. this is eddie beck's house. he took us through what it was like when s.w.a.t. teams went through. >> they came in and searched the living room area, dining room. went there through all the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen area. >> did they search cabinets? >> they didn't go through cabinet, but they went through all the bedroom closet doors and made their way through the back. >> he shared his own footage of the s.w.a.t. teams combing through his house. during the moments they didn't know where he was. beck got a chill just thinking about it. >> knowing they had him surrounded and so close to our neighborhood, it made us think he might have been here at nighttime and they flushed him out into that area. >> reporter: vivian lives very close to the house where tsarnaev was cornered. >> how do you feel now that it's over? >> it's surreal. i think i'm numb. i don't really feel -- i gu
by tennessee law. and if you don't, well then you don't have to do business in tennessee. it's just that simple and fair. in terms of imposing a new tax, this bill does not create one new tax. first, there are no federal taxes in here, none. and second, we don't even have the power to impose a new state tax, a state sales tax, nor would we try. no new taxes. simply a question of compliance and collecting the taxes already owed in the 46 states that currently have sales and use taxes. i urge my colleagues to come forward tonight at 5:30, vote for cloture on the motion to proceed. let us engage in this important debate. let us not put this off another day, another week, another month. let's bring this to a conclusion in the senate with a good, wholesome debate on a bipartisan basis, germane, relevant, constructive amendments that address some of the issues are welcome. bring them forward and let's not burn up the hours of the day and the hours of the week in quorum calls but let's get down to the business of the senate we were sent to do. i yield the floor. a senator: mr. president? the presiding
number for a civilization. stronger gun laws can make a difference. calling in.you for this is the front page of " the washington times." michael is from rockville center, new york. caller: the reason this legislation failed is not only would it have not prevented the terrible tragedy that occurred in connecticut but also the tragedy in colorado. abroad is lacking because it would appear both parties have used this issue to raise money and at the same time not really address it responsibly. i think most americans are on to the fact that would appear you bringin -- that what you in personalities like cabby gifford or families from connecticut, at the end of the day we are failing to address the substantive problems that are far more concern to americans. are you a gun owner? caller: i am not. i would tell you from my own experience i am very fortunate. i know for a fact that a couple of my neighbors are law enforcement officials that carry guns. when we experienced the black hats here ends tropical storm standee there was a sense -- the black out here and tropical storm sandy there was a

. that got law enforcement zeroing on the two brothers. bill: mike, we're trying to piece this together as best we can but what can you tell us about the reports that the fbi is questioning him today from his hospital bed? >> reporter: all of that goes back to a "usa today" report citing anonymous sources. the sourcing is not as tight as i would like but certainly a significant development. we know he has been sedated. he has a injury to his neck or jaw, a bullet wound to his neck or jaw that prevented him from communicating. 9 report says he was roused back to consciousness and providing things in writing and providing substantive answers to questions. we know from the information he is providing that indicates there is not a larger network and not a second wave of bombings to be feared, bill. bill: mike, thank you. we'll be back with you when there are more headlines from boston. mike leading our coverage there martha. martha: we are hearing the police chatter when police first spotted dzhokhar tsarnaev hiding in that covered boat. massachusetts state police released the stunning infr
are rampant at all of this times. i actually always find it best to just let the law enforcement officials do their job first. they did not need have rumors or innuendoes thrown around by public officials like me. that does not help the situation. host: what are you doing today? what will guest: your agenda my dad will be tried to stay on top of this as best as possible so they can pass information to others. today's the second most important day for those law enforcement people to do their investigation. they have to get this done as quickly as possible as evidence is available. god forbid if anyone is responsible and thinking about doing this again, before they strike again. host: is that a possibility? guest: you never know. those of the kind of things i like to stay away from. something you can do something like this is certainly an evil and crazy person. you never know what is on the mind of people. they almost always turn out to be, by any normal in definition of the term, insane. you cannot understand what would drive someone to kill innocent people. violence is a part of life, people
,ming. mr. presiden this amendment protects the privacy and sety of law-abiding gun owners. when government officials release gun ownership information it puts many lives at risk. this includes the lives of lawful gun owners, the lived of law enforcement and the lives of ctheic violence. state or local governments that release private gun owner information will be penalized 5% of their federal program funding. this includes the release of private information on individuals 0 who have licenses to purchase or who possess or who carry firearms. the funding that's withheld will then be redistributed to the states that are in compliance. this amendment will ensure that gun owners across the nation do not have their private gun owner information publicly released. thank you, mr. president. and i urge all my colleagues to support the amendment. mr. leahy: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from vermont. mr. leahy: this is a case of washington being big brother and telling each one of the states whether it's wyoming, vermont, or connecticut here's what you have to do. we have no idea
're selling the rule of law, individual responsibility and equal opportunity. i don't see that republicans can gain electorate by sacrificing the rule of law in order to start a conversation when that topic is on the last of six among hispanic voters in the country today. >> bill: it may be last but the perception is the democratic pear the is going to give them stuff and going to be more lenient on the border. therefore, you have to win hearts and minds. i would wo would always say, if i was a poor mexican, i would come to america and send money back. i think it's our fault and mexico, of course, and exploiting people in for years. ronald reagan promised things would change. that a series of republican and democratic presidents didn't do anything. you can blame the illegal alien but in that spirit you might want to compromise? >> ronald reagan let me down two tiles, 1986 when he signed the amnesty act, he was honest enough to call it that. he could not follow on his word to enforce the law. each succeeding administration has enforced it let's and less. now, the president has lawlessly announc
to the success to the law enforcement investigation. it will be equally important as the city works to reclaim and restore boylston street. we have been working closely with business owners to near the plaza and opening up a mobile city hall close to the area for visitors to have fast a access to the city. also our team has been in communication with the victims and the families who continue to work as we move towards opening the area of boston for our public once again. i want to say to my team behind me, thank you for doing a great job. last week or so, all the agencies and since friday have been working overtime to make sure that the plan works to reestablish boylston street. they have been working under all the plans. thank you. >> heather: you've been listening to a live news conference. the mayor talking about a five-step plan now to reopen boylston street, perhaps the most famous street in america. the area specifically affected when this bombing happened last monday at the boston marathon. let's go to adam housley who is still standing by live for us. i understand you were just in the
surveillance by law enforcement officers. as you mentioned he was intubated and sedated with serious injuries. as the investigation continues the focus today is on what charges he will face and when. one week after two deadly bombs exploded in downtown boston, killing three and injuring 183 people, the only surviving suspect remains in serious condition at beth israel deaconess medical center. as federal prosecutors prepare to bring charges against him, law enforcement sources say dzhokhar tsarnaev is unable to talk after a gunshot wound to the neck. exactly when he suffered this injury is still unknown. >> this is a very complex investigation, and it's hard to say exactly how he received that injury. there was certainly a shoot-out in watertown. there were explosives thrown. so that's being looked into right now. it's hard to say exactly how it occurred. >> reporter: we're learning more about the tense moments right before tsarnaev's arrest. this aerial video shows infrared images of him hiding out on a boat in the backyard of a home in watertown. according to a law enforcement source close
law of war or whether he should be turned over to the civilian criminal justice system immediately. should the ballston bomber be designated as an enemy combatants? give us a call. -- the boston bomber. a very good monday morning to you. we want to take you to the statement that was released over the weekend by three senators and one republican congressman. senator john mccain, senator instagram, senator kelly ayotte, and congressman king. they say the man should be treated as an enemy combatants. so we will take you through that debate that took place on a lot of the sunday shows today and which is on the front page of several newspapers today. here is the front page of the washington times. they're right that this issue is more politically contentious. ma auehe sunday mohows that the white house could lose the honorable intelligence if it mishandles the suspect poses questioning. the debate over the suspect plutayed o on the sunday morning shows. here's another story in the washington post about the status of the case. we will start with lindsey graham, the republican senator fro

on this investigation, we are joined by brandi hitt in boston. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. law enforcement officials tell abc news that the terror suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev is awake being questioned by authorities about possible accomplices. with the throat injury, though he is having to write down these responses, one week after the terror attack. law enforcement sources tell abc news terror suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev is awake in a boston hospital. and being questioned about possible accomplices and unexploded bombs. the 19-year-old is responding in writing, due to a serious throat injury. authorities say may have ctlf. >> they had other bombs. they had other explosives. they were probably planning to do something else. >> reporter: this is the first moment an elite federal interrogation team has spoken to tsarnaev since friday's dramatic end to the manhunt. new video shows him hiding in a boat as stun grenades exploded leading to capture. tsarnaev's older brother, tamerlan was killed in a police shootout and investigators are looking into his trip to russia which has become a hotbed of i
than 100 cameras in law enforcement communities. that is all around the world, not just here in the u.s. >>gretchen: thanks for that update. so much more information coming out in the last 48 hours after the killing and then the capture of the suspects. sources now are saying that they acted alone, but the big question this morning is: how much did other members of their family know? keep in mind that tamerlan, the 26-year-old suspect who was killed on thursday night moving into friday, that he was married. he was married to an american woman who became a muslim after she married him. they had a three-year-old daughter together. it's questionable now whether or not they were actually still together at the time of this bombing. some sources are saying that she, catherine, pictured here, had moved back home with her mother, judith, with the baby. and maybe that would be when tamerlan ended up going back to russia for those six months because if you're married and you have a small child, you might wonder, that would be suspicious to be gone for six months. >>steve: she is on the cover o
will prosecute this terrorist through our civil system of justice. underu.s. law, the united states citizens can not be tried rather in military commissions. martha: but house armed services commission buck mckeown argues that the white house should reconsider. he says, quote, it seems premature to declare that we will not treat tsarnaev as an enemy combatant since we don't know about his affiliations. clearly american citizens must be tried to civilian court, but the same citizen viciously attacked his countrymen, should be exploited for his intelligence value before any trial begins. that will be a debate that rages on for some time on this issue. we'll talk more later in the show with former new york city mayor rudy giuliani. bill: looking forward to that coming up here. meanwhile the feds want to talk to the widow of the suspect, tamerlan. she is mother of 3-year-old daughter between the two. the her lawyer said talks are underway with the feds how to proceed with that. he revealed on the last day tamerlan was home when his wife left for work. martha: well the officers who capturedded dzhokh
. the death toll still estimated at 5 to 15. >> one of the missing persons was a firefighter/law enforcement officer. i can tell you that individual has been found. he is in a hospital and he has some pretty serious injuries. i don't know the status whether it's critical, serious or whatever. but i was told he is in the hospital. has pretty serious injuries. there are still firefighters missing. >> police say there has been massive out pours from governor's office to feds and other agencies. in the nearby town of abbot we got this video in. 100 cots have been set up to take care of people who will be left homeless and grief counselors to deal with what's happening. >>> we are also now getting reports of lewding happening in the damaged neighborhoods. >> that is a significant concern to us. this is a community that we are going to do our absolute best to protect. and if that means offending folks by not letting them come home right away to keep them safe and neighborhood safe, we'll do that and apologize later. >> you are looking at video that was shot overnight. in terms of new pictures, we
it into law. that undertaking and many others, john berry made a real difference of the more than 62,000 federal workers and everyone else who called my district home. just as we look to our federal workers to watch out for us, our federal workers look to john to watch out for them, to make sure they have a safe work environment, that their paychecks will arrive on time and the benefits they earn are the ones they receive. under president clinton, john served as deputy assistant secretary and acting assistant secretary for law enforcement at the treasury department. overseeing the united states secret service and the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms. and he later moved to the interior department where he was assistant secretary for policy, management and budget, essentially the manager of the department of interior. before coming to the office of personnel management, john spent nearly a decade working on conservation as director of the fish and wildlife foundation, and then arguably the job he perhaps has enjoyed most, he became director of the national zoo. at the national z

and terrorist groups. leven said to hold him under these circumstances would be contrary to our laws and jeopardize our effort to prosecute him. during interviews before suspects are read their rights is often not admissible during the trial. the issue on miranda rights is further complicated because the u.s. is a u.s. citizen. many of the rules cannot be used on americans. live in the newsroom, katie utehs. ktvu news. >>> people are in texas are being allowed in their homes. curfew is still in effect and there is limited water and electricity. many are still trying to learn the condition of family and friends hurt in the explosion. >> it's really hectic, but we are patient because we know the extent of damage on the other side. and we got friends and family that we don't know about over there. >> 14 people died in the fertilizer plant explosion, including 11 emergency responders. 200 more were injured. >>> this weekend, texas is also remembering the deadly raid on the branch compound in waco. 76 people died in a fire twenty years ago following a raid on the compound. waco and west
and that it is a person who sent a lot of letters to law americas. but we don't know who that person is. we don't really have any other specific information just that mail service to the u.s. senate has been stopped and some senators are concerned. >> it is not just members concerned but a lot of staff, that's a big concern obviously for all of us. we are very anxious to get the details. >> senator wicker who was the recipient of this letter said this matter is part of an ongoing investigation by the united states capital police and fbi. i want to thank our law enforcement officials for their hard work and diligence in keeping those who work at the capitol complex safe. in ricin poison found at that time no one was injured but there was no letter levever fou so no rayses were ever made. the united states postal service says their primary concern is keeping employees safe, customers safe and keeping the u.s. mail safe. >> peter doocy live for us in maryland this morning. thank you. >>> other news to bring you noul. it is a some der day in london where we take a live look at the coffin of margaret thatch
happened including american support for -- as a law enforcement and intelligence practitioner is inclusiveness in america. as a law enforcement tool, i worried all along when i was in the business that americans would start to say as a result of events like this that there are real americans and other americans. that kind of mentality if we ever get it will accelerate i think these cases of radicalization. kids like this when they take the oath will say i took the oath but i'm still not accepted. >> to what exstent one of the dangers here? one can overread too much. these may be two cases of a bad situation. to what extent might be assimilation machine in the u.s. be broken down or not functioning as well as it used to. in europe, minority communities were excluded marginalized but not in the united states. the polling data suggests that. but does this tell us maybe we should pay attention to that? >> compared to what? the assimilation mod until the united states works marvelously compared to france or germany or great britain. if you look back in history, the irish, the jews,
to be the author of one of the only new laws in recent years to expand access to mental health services and reduce the significant stigma of seeking help. this expands access to care in a comfort matter, through telemedicine. it provides a template that can be expanded to those living with mental health issues and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. for what purpose does the gentleman from connecticut seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> thank you, mr. speaker. i rise today to associate myself with remarks of the legendary john lewis. mr. larson: i also stand in praise of cathy mcmorris rodgers who yesterday came with all the grace and eloquence about the need to bring the country together in the aftermath of what took place up in boston and to bring comfort to families. yesterday in the other body brought little comfort to families, especially families from newtown, connecticut, who traveled there, who had lo
, methodical, careful and professional investigation. we've got every imaginable law enforcement agency at the federal, state, and local level. they are working very, very well together under the leadership of the fbi. it is going to take time. it's a several block crime scene and it's being combed sort of a quarter inch by quarter inch. it's going to be a slow investigation but i think as every hour and day passes, they make progress. >> what do you think is the attitude? you would know it as well as anyone up there, the attitude of the boston people and the massachusetts people about this? do they just feel that they are victims, something bad happened? or is there a sense of anger, if you will, that somebody would do this or a group of would do this? >> well, i think it's a mixture of all of that and more. i think certainly people are shocked, shaken in many, many cases shattered that something like this could happen at a civic ritual like the marathon of which we are so proud and on patriots day, there's frustration that the perpetrators haven't been found but i think people should
and sedated. >> all the law enforcement professionals are hoping for a host of reasons that the suspect survives because we have many questions. those questions need to be answered. >> in this photograph taken right after his arrest, the college student's neck area appears covered with blood. the younger brother'ses cape was busted when a man found him hiding in his backyard boat. thermal images shows a white image of an object projecting heat. in another still photo you can make out the suspect's feet in black lying in the boat. a robotic arm moves in and lifts the tarp. . the police chief tells wolf blitzer about those moments. >> we began negotiations that way. over a long period of time, we were able to finally get him to surrender. >> agents yell at him to give himself up. police say there was an exchange of gunfire. authorities said his injuries came during thursday night's shootout when his brother was killed. agents spent the day combing over every inch of the boat collecting blood, hair and more to build a case against the suspected boston marathon bomber. and today prosecutors
that sort of final fall on to the ground and that's where law enforcement sources basically handcuffed him and put him in the ambulance that took him to the hospital. so he is communicating with them, he is allowed to nod. he is just allowed to nod to investigators when they're asking him questions. they're waiting for him to increasingly become more aware and get out of that sedation so that they can talk to him at greater lengths, anderson. >> and, don lemon, you've got information about who's questioning the suspect. >> yeah, i certainly do. to add to what debra said who's questioning the suspect, it's a group called the high value detainee interrogation group. and this group was established seven or eight years ago it was after the capture of saddam hussein and the interrogation of saddam hussein. and what homeland security realized then is they needed one specific group with global knowledge of terrorism, international knowledge of terrorism, to go in to question these high-value detainees rather than a local person who has knowledge of the local area, local municipalities but didn't
by the f.b.i. i want to thank law officials for their hard work and diligence in keeping those of us who work in the capitol complex safe. as for the u.s. postal service, they say their primary concern is keeping their employees safe, their customers safe and keeping the u.s. mail safe as well. >>gretchen: let's do some other headlines. a thrift store worker hospitalized after an explosion in his face. the georgia man suffered minor burns and immediately people started thinking of the boston attack. >> given yesterday's event, we're going to be extra cautious. that's why you see the response you're seeing here today. >>gretchen: however officials do say that incident was isolated. >>brian: american airlines says they'll be back to near normal operations today. a major computer meltdown forced the airline to cancel nearly 1,000 flights and delay over 1,000 more. american says their reservation system was down for hours. thousands of passengers were left stranded in airports around the country certainlying for information. -- searching for information. >> after we were there for an hour or
